The Termitary (Термитник) is an enormous slaughterhouse located in the eastern part of the Town in the Skinners District. In Pathologic 2, it is sometimes referred to as "the Warren". It sits lodged into the Abattoir, an ancient temple and a place of great significance to the Kin. At the beginning of the game the Termitary is closed for unknown reasons, with Big Vlad refusing to let anyone in.


The Termitary consists of two giant concrete building, Block #1 and #2. It is owned by Big Vlad, who had the buildings constructed after a great fire in the Earth district to house workers from the Kin. While those in the Abattoir oversee the slaughter of bulls, the residents of the Termitary blocks handle the actual processing of the meat to fuel the Bull Enterprise.

The workers live in communes in an oppressive, work-addled lifestyle. Despite this, there is a living, though far from thriving, community of Kin housed within the Termitary. Their leader, "Father Superior" Tycheek recently passed, preceding the Haruspex's first visit to the Termitary. They are currently led by Tycheek's daughter, Mother Superior Taya Tycheek.

Although many townsfolk seem to share a similar opinion to Big Vlad, who looks down on the worker Kin as nothing more than primitive cattle or a "singular, multi-headed organism", many like to avoid speaking about the Termitary and when brought up, speak of it as a blemish on the town. Vlad the Younger posits himself as a more compassionate master than his father, but is a master nonetheless, and one without the strength or will to effect real change. He describes the Kin as "water", which his father shaped into mindless beasts.

The Kin housed in the Termitary speak frequently of their disdain for the Olgimsky family.



Bachelor Route

On Day 6, the Bachelor receives a letter from Capella. She tells him that some arsonists led by Var are going to attack the Termitary and asks him to warn her brother, Vlad the Younger. Vlad Jr. will request the Bachelor's help in taking down the arsonists. If the Bachelor goes to the Termitary, he will find a few guards and several arsonists, with Var standing at the far end near the Abattoir entrance.

On Day 8, Vlad Jr. tells the Bachelor that there is a false Panacea being produced and distributed inside of the Termitary under the Bachelor's name. The Bachelor will find the Haruspex in a room on the first floor, right next to the Termitary entrance. The Haruspex tells the Bachelor where he can find several Worms who have been producing the false Panacea and he can choose whether or not to punish them. The Bachelor must also find Taya Tycheek to get permission to enter the Abattoir. In order to do so, she asks that he either bring her Vlad Jr. or retrieve a toy she lost. While speaking to Capella on this day, she will give him some Ferromycinium and ask that he deliver the pills to Taya.

On Day 9, the Inquisitor asks the Bachelor to find the Haruspex. He will find the Haruspex in the Long Block of the Termitary in the same room where he found the Worms on Day 8.

On Day 12, the Changeling can be found on the first floor in the Short Block of the Termitary.

Haruspex Route

On Day 1, in order to enter his family home, the Haruspex needs to get the key from two guards near the Termitary.

On Day 6, the Haruspex needs to obtain Bull's Blood for the Bachelor. In order to find a bull, he goes to the Short Block of the Termitary and finds Taya Tycheek on the top floor alongside two Butchers. She asks him for 50 Alpha-Tablets in exchange for information on where to find a bull.

On Day 7, while looking for the Inquisitor, the Haruspex is sent to search the Termitary. He asks Taya if she has seen the Inquisitor, and Taya tells him that the Inquisitor has already left. Taya will ask the Haruspex to find some Worms who have been hiding in the Short Block of the Termitary. After finding them, when the Haruspex attempts to leave, he will be attacked by two muggers. He can then tell Taya what he learned from the Worms.

On Day 8 the Haruspex, having received a letter from Georgiy Kain, must decide how to deal with the results of the Termitary's closure. Though it was Vlad the Younger who closed it and left the Kin inside to starve, the Haruspex is able to send either Vlad the Younger or Big Vlad to face judgement by talking to Taya Tycheek. If the Haruspex sends the Younger Vlad as Georgiy requested he will receive 3000 coins from him. If he sends Big Vlad instead he will receive no reward, but the quest will be finished regardless.

On Day 12, the Changeling can be found on the first floor in the Short Block of the Termitary.

Changeling Route

On Day 6, the Changeling will find her sister's followers in a fenced area next to the Termitary.

On Day 7, the Changeling needs to find information about the Inquisitor. In order to do so, she has to find the Executor Cloak and give it to the Haruspex who will be found in the Short Block of the Termitary.

On Day 8, the Changeling asks Taya Tycheek for permission to enter the Abattoir. Taya will only allow her to enter if the Changeling is able to tell her a story that she has never heard before. The Changeling has to ask Sticky for a good story, after which she can return to Taya and tell her the story.

On Day 9, the Changeling goes to the Short Block of the Termitary in search of Stanislav Rubin. Rubin will not be there, but she will find the Bachelor on the first floor and the Haruspex on the top floor.

Prior to Day 7, the Termitary is closed, having been locked by the Olgimskys. On Day 7, the Termitary is opened by Aglaya Lilich and the Haruspex is finally able to enter and speak to Taya Tycheek. The Haruspex quickly discovers that the Termitary has already been hit by the Plague and most of the Kin inside are dead. The Kin want the man responsible for locking them up: Vlad Olgimsky. The Haruspex then has a choice to either confront one of the Olgimskys and send them to the Termitary, confront neither, or, with the Changeling's help, confront Big Vlad but send neither. If the Haruspex sends one of the Olgimskys, the one sent will die. If the Haruspex confronts neither, both will die. If the Haruspex talks to Big Vlad, but then talks to the Changeling in the Lump who informs him that she also told Vlad the Younger, he can speak to Big Vlad again and save both Olgimskys.

On Day 8, after fruitless attempts by the Haruspex to evacuate Taya Tycheek from the Termitary, it is revealed that despite earning respect from many members of the Kin, a schism has formed within the community, fuelled by hatred for the Haruspex. If the Haruspex attempts to solve the schism through strength, he can climb the stairs of the Termitary to kill a number of Worms. However, if the Haruspex waits until he returns from the Abattoir following Day 9 and has had the Abattoir Dream, he is able to solve the schism peacefully by talking to a Worm inside the Termitary instead. Though the Haruspex can sacrifice either one or both Olgimskys to achieve this resolution, neither of the Olgimskys dying is required. Once the schism is solved, the members of the Kin still living in the Termitary will leave and move to Shekhen.

In the Diurnal ending, one of the Changelings will be found in the now abandoned Termitary.
